The RV Shop in Tauranga is pleading for any information after a large caravan was stolen from their lot.

Between the hours of 2.30am and 4am, thieves entered the Hewletts Road lot, hooked up the caravan to another vehicle and drove off.

CCTV footage from across the road show the caravan being driven down Hewletts Road, once it leaves the lot.

“The number plate of the caravan is U539B, and the vehicle is about 7m long, it's one of the longer caravans so will stand out from others if you see it,” says a post to SunLive's Facebook page.

“The caravan got stuck driving out of the premises and left scrape marks on the driveway, there will most likely be marks on the lower and underneath of the caravan.

“There were lots of cars, trucks and cyclists who went past, if you went past and have any information, please let us know.

“The driver stopped three times outside our premises before driving in take the caravan, they were parked in the bus lane with the hazard lights on a couple of times, did you see anything? Call us on 07 575 5612.”

Business owners on Hewletts Road with security cameras outside are being asked to check their footage to see if the stolen caravan was driven past their premises.

“Please share this post, the more people looking for this caravan the better. Thank you.”

what no cameras?

RV shop needs to invest in some cameras, and better than their neighbours'. Thieves need their hands chopping off when caught but I suspect a wet bus ticket awaits. The extra police are needed to just to round up people who have breached bail or been released early. Broken system.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
